CarCycle 

Written By: Craig Sink 



SUMMARY 

CarCYcle is a means of transportation that resembles a common vehicle but is operated by 
a bicycle. CarCYcle has functioning electrical work that is controlled by the rider. With this 
manual, you will be able to create and be the proud owner of your very own version of 
CarCYcle.

• Table 1 is a recommended list of materials that will be used when creating CarCYcle. The 
is only a recommended list because every version of CarCYcle depends on bicycle size 
and which type of vehicle the rider prefers. Along with the list of parts, a saw, drill, 
screwdriver, and tape measure will be used throughout the process. 

• Table 2 is a cut list of the wood needed for CarCYcle. Make sure to measure all of the cuts 
before cutting to ensure that there will be enough lumber. 



Step 2 




• Attach Part A to Part D by 

screwing the two parts together as 
shown in picture. When lining up 
the holes for Part A, remember to 
screw through the hole that is 1 
inch from the edge, not the one that 
is !/2 inch from the edge.

Step 3 




• Place Part F flush with Part D and 
underneath Part A as shown in 
picture. Using the holes in Part A 
as a guide, drill through Part F. 
Once the hole is drilled in Part F, 
connect Part A to Part F with a 
screw to form the configuration in 
Figure 3. 



Step 4 



AA 



• Align Part D above Part F as 
shown in the picture. Slanted holes 
must be drilled through Part D into 
Part F. Once these holes are 
made, screws can be put into 
place.

Step 5 



D 



• Use the holes in Part B as a guide 
and drill into Part B. Fasten Part B 
and Part D. 



Step 6 




• To create the left side of the frame, 
assemble the two configurations of 
Parts A (2), C, D, and H. Then, 
with the use of hinges (4), attach 
the configurations to the doors. The 
last part is to attach the latch as 
shown in the picture.

Step 7 




• The picture shows Part E attaching 
Sub-Assembly A to Sub-Assembly 
B. 



Step 8 




• The picture shows a cutaway of the 
frame mounted to the bike. An easy 
way to ensure that the middle Part 
B is in the right location is to first 
mount the U bracket with Part C. 
Once this is accomplished, mark 
on the sides of Sub-Assembly A 
and Sub-Assembly B. This will be 
where the middle Part E is located.

Step 9 




• The first step in completing the 
body of CarCYcle is to mold the 
chicken wire around the frame. The 
easiest way to do this is to use 
twist ties. The picture shown is a 
CAD drawing of the wiring attached 
to the frame (shown on the left) and 
the papier-mache. 



Step 10 




• Shown here is the electrical 
diagram for CarCYcle.

Step 11 




• Shown here is CarCYcle with all of 
the electrical work installed. At this 
point, CarCYcle should be fully 
operational!
